What does the Brahmin warranty cover?
Upon registering your handbag, Brahmin will warranty your purchase against workmanship and structural defects for one full year from date of purchase. A two year warranty is extended if you self-register online through this form.
When sending an item in for repairs, a valid sales receipt must be included to show your product was purchased within the warranty period. Once your product is inspected and a manufacturer’s defect is found, we will repair or replace your product with the same style if available or a style of equal value based on the purchase price stated on the receipt.
Brahmin reserves the right to exclude any damage caused by negligence and/or normal wear and tear. We do not guarantee or warranty any item purchased through a third party unauthorized dealer. See a list of all authorized dealers here.

Adjusting Your Shoulder Strap
At Brahmin, we want your handbag to feel comfortable and fit your style. Most of our straps are adjustable to create a desired strap drop length. Follow the simple instructions below to adjust your strap as needed. You may also click here to watch a video detailing the steps to adjust your strap.
- Start by sliding the leather loop over the collar button to the opposite side of the strap. Force the button out of the strap hole (there is a small slit above the hole that may need to be pried open a bit to help remove the button).
- Bring the end of the strap up to the hole where you would like to adjust it. Our basic strap will allow you to double over the entire strap for a much shorter, shoulder bag look.
- Push the button through the hole, and slide the leather loop back over the collar button to where the strap now attaches to the handbag. Adjust the opposite side of the strap if needed.
If you need assistance or have any questions about adjusting your strap, call Repairs at 1-800-229-2428.
